When it comes to Arsenal transfer news, the BBC’s David Ornstein is hugely reliable.
So, the Tweet above has already been taken as gospel by many Gooners keeping a keen eye on how Arsene Wenger strengthens this summer.
Ornstein suggests Arsenal are no longer interested in Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira which backs up the reports in Portugal that the Gunners have made a move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.
If not, the other likely target as a defensive midfielder will probably be Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin.
The incoming goalkeeper to the Emirates will likely be David Ospina, the Colombia keeper, according to the French press over the last 24 hours.
And, a defender will be signed depending on Thomas Vermaelen (heavily linked with Manchester United) and Carl Jenkinson (who may move on loan to West Ham).
Still plenty of time for Arsene Wenger to spend some cash!
